The Georgia State Capitol, in Atlanta, Georgia, is an architecturally and historically significant building. It has been named a National Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Like many U.S. state capitols, the Georgia State Capitol is designed to resemble the Classical architectural style of the United States Capitol, in Washington, D.C. and was completed in 1889.
